with the details. >> reporter: we have a he said/she said between the hacker group and the fbi of all federal agencies. let's take a look at what we know so far. the hacker group is called antisec claiming to have posted 1 million apple identifying data pieces of information. they also say that they've got 12 million of these i.d.s in total and only posting a few as a sample. they say they got the information from the laptop of a fbi special agent by hacking in to that laptop and includes unique device identifiers, user names and in some cases links it to personal information such as e-mail addresses. now, here's what the fbi says about this. they say at this time there is no evidence indicating that a fbi laptop was compromised or that the fbi either sought or obtained this data. now, i talked to the fbi about that this morning and saying there's no evidence of this agent had this information on his laptop. wasn't a personal situation with it on an off the the record basis. they say he simply didn't have the information that the hacker group said he had. now, here's where this story starts t
know, jarks, have you followed this -- everybody is waiting for the fbi to go to benghazi to find the people that killed our ambassador. but the fbi will not go to benghazi. they are in tripoli at our embassy there which has good security. they will not go to benghazi because the security is so awful. even now, 12, 14 days after the attack. so you have got to know that these al qaeda terrorist crazies, they knew that, and they were gunning for our ambassador and the white house was informed of it right away and they are covering that up, jack jacobs. >> it is absolutely true. now it's known the fbi is not only in benghazi, they are not going either. indeed it is even worse than that. there is a large number of witnesses whom they could interview in benghazi who will not go to tripoli to get interviewed by the fbi. they are very much concerned about their names being released, their families being in trouble. if they testify. they are not going anywhere. the fbi is not going to give any information from people who were on the ground and know what happened in benghazi. >> jennifer r
over the past year signaling obama as our next president? this is the kudlow report. the fbi is on the ground in libya investigating last week's assault on our embassy there which resulted in the death of four officials including our ambassador. and today after more than a week of denials, the white house finally admits it was a terror attack. unfortunately they have been lying to us for more than a week for political campaign reasons and i think it's emperative that ambassador susan rice step down immediately. and going to ask homeland security team -- mitt romney, one reason why obama's polls are looking stronger could be the stock market owning investor class. he's very happy with a 25% gain just over the last year. and new studies show that stocks predict elections better than any other variable. but first up, after nine days, the u.s. government is finally calling the consulate attack in benghazi, an act of terrorism. the fbi now on the ground in libya. here's the latest. >> caller: good evening, larry, the fbi has arrived in tripoli, libya where they are carrying out an
. the fbi now says there is no evidence to support claims that hacking group anonymous infiltrated an fbi agent's laptop and lifted data for more than 12 million apple products. however the front page of "the financial times" lays it out and says hackers embarrass apple with this data release. there were over a million different devices, numbers were published online. this is a story that has many odd twists. the hackers said they would not give any interviews about this breach until a gawker posed with a ballet tutu with a shoe on his head for at least 24 hours. so the journalist did just that. he said that he would do anything for his craft. here is a picture of him posing in a tutu with a shoe on his head. anonymous went after this particular reporter because they've had some run-ins with him in the past. they haven't liked some of his reporting. he says, here it is. it's still posted on the front page of gawker. >> this is the best publicity gawker could possibly have today. >> really? >> i mean, right, a reporter with a tutu and a shoe on his head? >> what's more frighten is what's a
trades and it is not just thefts. fake and frauds are flooding the market. the fbi says 6% of the cases are ever solved. most thefts remain who done its? like the infamous heist at the garden museum. in 1990 two men dressed as police officers entered the museum and overpowered two guards. >> they tied the guards up and for the next hour or so they stole a number of pieces, a number of rembrandts. >> 12 pieces were stolen in all. today empty frames still hang in the dutch room gallery of the museum. they are a constant reminder that none of the paintings have ever been recovered and no arrests have ever been made. that collection was worth $500 million. considered the single largest property crime in the history of this country. for more on art theft and forgery and art for the taking, tonight's "crime inc" here on cnbc tonight at 9:00. when they pitched this idea to us i thought it was about cat burglars and lasers, but it turns out to be a lot of that. a lot of it happens in weekend homes in south hampton where there's nobody home, where there are great collections going on. once you l
they work for government. one is working for security, fbi. another in the da's office. they make about $250,000 as a couple after they pay for the kids and the food and whatever they need just to get by, they don't have a lot of money left over. where does this number, $250,000 for a couple, come from? do you really think $200,000 for an individual, that person should be paying higher taxes in this economy right now? is that the number? >> look, i think we need to price our product. the things we have government buy, whether it's defending our country abroad, building roads at home, providing education, providing law enforcement, cia to keep us safe, nih, whatever it is -- >> you're saying yes. >> we need to make a determination. do we want it? if we don't want it, then we don't have to pay for it. if we want it, yes, we need to pay for it. who's going to pay for it? those people who have resources to help pay the bills of our country. we made decisions. we're buying a lot. the republicans, frankly, in my view, have not cut spending under ronald reagan or under george bush i or george bush
-- security is so bad that the fbi won't even even go in now to investigate the case. and i want to stay with this. what about this coverup? >> it is a coverup. >> susan rice goes out and basically lies to the american people on a number of news shows, we now know that the administration knew right away that this was a pre-planned al qaeda terrorist operation and they lied and now they're covering up the lie. >> within 24 hours they knew it was an al qaeda operation. >> so that's why they don't want obama loose on this foreign policy. >> obama never takes -- he never says i'm to blame. it's always george bush is to blame, somebody else is to blame. he's never to blame. he is to blame. it's on his watch. >> go ahead, mark. >> the one thing that i have to say in defense of the administration here, and i know the security situation in the north africa quite well because of my own experience. it was confusing in the beginning. but it's no excuse if going out there and trotting out some alibi that it was not a terrorist attack. so i agree with that. but the one thing i want to say is the pres
